Swing Grilling The German Way
Bavarian style swing grills are really hot right now. A practical way of cooking large quantities of sausage and steak quickly, it’s no wonder that these awesome grills have fast become Christmas Market and event favourites the world over.
It’s rumoured that this distinctive fire pit style grill originated in South America, before being popularised in Southern Germany – where the worder “Schwenker” originates – and then spreading around the world. The person grilling on a Schwenker grill may also be referred to as a Schwenker, or a Schwenkermeister.
Mark Coles, Key Account Manager with The Sausage Man, spent some time visiting Xmas events across the UK this month and reports: “Bavarian style Swing Grills are fast becoming the weapon of choice for our Showmen customers. They’re open sided, so the customers get a great look at the products and cooking process. The cooking smell circulates fantastically across the site, so it’s great at attracting people to your stall. The firepit also keeps your cooking team nice and warm in the winter weather, which is always welcome in the temperatures like we’ve been having lately!”
Versatile German Sausage For Every Occasion
No matter what type of cooking method you use at your event, The Sausage Man has the products for you. You don’t need a Swinging Schwenker Grill to prepare Sausage Man products, but you can certainly use one.
Jorg Braese, Managing Director of The Sausage Man, had this to say: “Our sausages are extremely versatile. We’ve cooked them in pans, microwaves, ovens, grills, hot dog machines, hot water, deep fryers, barbeques and steamers. Each preparation adds and highlights different flavours. There’s no wrong answer, as the results are always great!”
Schwenkbraten in the UK
Though Swing Grills are great for cooking sausages, the traditional meat prepared on a Schwenker in Southern Germany is a marinated pork neck steak or Schwenkerbraten, also known as Schweinenackensteak elsewhere. These awesome Pork Steaks are also available in the UK from The Sausage Man, in four different varieties and currently (at the time of writing, December 2021) on offer with 5% off:
